Well I dont know if you guys remember last spring when I asked the question how to hang this fence but I finally got it done this week. I also got a new camera from the fat man for christmas so I figured I would take some pictures.

We drilled the holes and set the ties last spring just after the frost left the ground

Did you bolt to the posts too?

i was wondering that too.

looks like maybe a strong wind from the backside could blow the belts far enough for a critter to get in or out, perhaps not :?

eitherway, that fence should last you awhile. :D
 
To answer some questions the belt came off a coal mine. We nail it to the ties with 6 inch spikes the wire we put on is to hopefull keep a cow from getting her her between the rubber and the poles to rub. As for getting over it you don't you walk around :) . This is just one side of a 1 arce pad that we use to calve out our first calf heifers we put the fence in for a wind break as well catching the morning sun to help the little guys out the rest of the fence is going to 4 square wire and barb.

If you can't walk over it, you should sell the idea of that kind of
fence to the government for a border fence. :D

Anyhow, it looks like a good deal to me for your use.
